In terms of departures, Loic Bessile was loaned to Eupen until the end of the season. They also announced that Oday Dabbagh, the Palestinian striker who plays in Portugal, will be joining the club in the summer on a free transfer.
One player set to depart is Ali Gholizadeh, with the Iranian midfielder rumoured to be joining a Turkish side in the coming days.
